Weekly Poll: Brawling Buttons

Weekly Poll for 3-10-2008Wait, hold on, so the most popular newcomers in Super Smash Bros. Melee are Mewtwo and Roy?  As in, the two characters I care the least about?  The same two characters I never use when I play?  Well, alright, if you're certain.  I'd have to pick Ganondorf as my choice thanks to his powerful punch and menacing taunt, although typically my Melee style leans towards my old favorites, Mario, Samus Aran, and sometimes Link.

Keeping in that Smash Bros. state of mind (sorry, Europe and Australia!), I've been enjoying the new Nintendo Wii installment, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  I'll talk more about that enjoyment later, but for the moment I'd like your opinion on the game's control options.  Brawl features four different ways to play.  For simplicity there's the Wii remote or the remote paired with the nunchuk.  Complexity builds with the Classic controller and my personal favorite, the GameCube controller.  Which do you prefer?  Let's hear your thoughts.
